My partner bid 1C in first seat. No opponent bidding.
I held, of course,
Playing strong JS, I would bid 2D, then minimum NT. No problem.
If I were sure that direct 3NT would show a strong balanced hand, that would be OK. But I'm sure it would not.
So I bid 1D, hear 1S. OK, no choice but 2H. Not so bad if partner can be relied on to show extras if he has them.
He makes the impossible bid of 4H. I bid 6NT down 1.
Granted, 4H was unspeakable, but that's not the point. He had to bid with no idea what I was after.
